Orange County Retail Investment Brokerage Firm Has Raised More than $102,000 Over Last Several Years for Movember Foundation
CORONA DEL MAR, CALIF. – December 11, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally-recognized boutique real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in retail property sales, announced today that the group has raised awareness and critical funds for men’s health in November, one moustache at a time. Hanley Investment Group raised $35,000 for The Movember Foundation, surpassing what the group raised last year.
Hanley Investment Group’s fundraising efforts landed the group in the top 25 out of 15,000 teams nationwide (the top 1% in the U.S.). Hanley Investment Group has raised more than $102,000 for the Movember Foundation since 2011. Proceeds are directed to programs that are run directly by Movember and their men’s health partners.
“I am ecstatic over the amount of money we raised and am grateful to those that have generously donated, which allowed us to not only meet our goal this year, but exceed it,” said Hanley Investment Group President Ed Hanley.
The Movember Foundation is one of the largest global men’s health charities investing in programs to address prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and physical inactivity. “The moustache continues to be an iconic way for participants to encourage dialogue around men’s health issues,” said Hanley. “Having lost my father to prostate cancer in 2009, this annual tradition of participating in Movember is near and dear to me. I am honored to help bring awareness to this cause and humbled by everyone’ financial support.”
Hanley Investment Group joined the global movement to help raise awareness for men’s cancer, specifically prostate cancer, by growing moustaches as a team. November 1st the men started clean shaven and for the rest of the month, these men, known as “Mo Bros,” groomed and trimmed their moustaches to effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Supported by the women in their lives, “Mo Sistas,” Movember Mo Bros raised funds by seeking out sponsorships for their moustache growing efforts.
